In Maryland, in order to apply for a salesperson license, the individual must present to the Commission a written notice signed by a licensed contractor and the applicant for the salesperson license confirming an employment or other contractual relationship between the licensed salesperson and the contractor.

An individual salesperson may not represent more than two licensed contractors at a time and may only represent one licensed contractor when negotiating a home improvement contract with the same homeowner.
